Ideas On Writing

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Writing Ideas

The answer to that starts with
whether or not you're going
to write about fiction or

Fiction is a world created by
a writer. He/she populates it
with memorable characters, an
interesting setting and a plot
that takes the reader down
various twisted paths.

Non-fiction is based on facts,
researched information. The
research route leads to the
Internet, library, interviews

Writing ideas await at home,
in gatherings and at the
doctor's office.

At home, you're sitting and
relaxing. The room is warm,
shelter from the winter season.
A sudden cold breeze push at
your back. You snap your head
around to see nothing.

The incident can be spun into
fiction or non-fiction.

In fiction, the writing idea
surrounds a haunted house.
People rumor that it's haunted
because death of a popular
person happened in the house
under suspicious circumstances,
or anyone who sleeps in a
certain room of the house
dies mysteriously.

A non-fiction idea centers
around researching owners of
one house, several generations.
The idea is to locate people
who can give eye-witness
accounts of paranormal activity.

Gatherings are opportunities for
collecting writing ideas. There's
usually more than one generation
to get writing ideas from.

A topic is talked about that
you'd like to write fiction
or non-fiction about.

Perhaps, a family secret was
whispered about. Do you write
fiction or non-fiction about
it? The choice rests in your
hands, the writer.

A possible idea follows.

"You stole grandmother's money?"
A cousin shouted.

"Weren't talkin' to ya," Billy

Mouths dropped, sighs and aws
could be heard three miles away.

What should happen next?

A non-fiction project could
focus on a study of your family.
Your idea?

The doctor's office is a place
most people would prefer not
to visit. Still, writing ideas
live there.

Have something happened in a
doctor's office you'd like to

Like: "Where's Amentis Cordo's
file?" A nurse rushed to the desk.

The lady at the front desk looked
in a wall covered file cabinet,
but couldn't find it.

"Not here."

The sound of someone bouncing
against the wall shot from the

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
